I had two packs of fresh golden-coloured apricots on my counter yesterday that needed to be used, so this morning I thought it right to make some glasses of apricot smoothie.

Yep, when this apricot smoothie recipe crossed my mind as one of my favourite vegan gluten free recipe to start off the day with, I knew what I needed to do. Making this smoothie was the perfect way of using up those apricots wisely to provide me with a simple but yet healthier breakfast treat for the day.

Another bounty is that this apricot smoothie was only paired with water, which made the smoothie a natural and winning one!

Nothing Artificial AT ALL!!!

This smoothie for sure is such that is all encompassing because it is dairy free, fat free, gluten free and certainly does not disappoint!

I can assure you that this apricot smoothie is pretty healthy as the sugary taste only came from the fruity apricots. Ripe apricots are quite distinctive with their unique sweet taste and the sweetness of this smoothie was right on point. Exactly the way I envisaged it to be!!! 

There wasn’t any additives in this smoothie either, just apricots and water made in my food processor for a perfect breakfast treat. These two ingredients paired brilliantly well together into a yummilicious, tasty and hearty smoothie strictly for my delight. 

I love awesome tasty smoothie and despite what I’m eating, I usually deem it complete with some kind of dessert like smoothie to liven things up a little bit and add some great flavor and liveliness to the meal. I can assure you for sure that this smoothie turned out pretty so good coupled with just the right amount of contents that were packed with great flavor and taste. 

Besides, it is so easy to throw the ingredients together for a real winning starter or dessert that fits in properly into any category of dishes you want it to belong to.

Honestly, I don’t just know about you but in my opinion there is no perfect way of kick-starting your day or complementing your main meal than with a glass or glasses of freshly made smoothies!!!

I’ve made several smoothie recipes in the past years, which have always turned out so well and captivating. So do you care for one? How about this freshly made apricot smoothie and I bet that you won’t ever be disappointed. But there are a few vital points to bear in mind while making this smoothie; firstly, don’t use unripe or damaged apricots and avoid adding excess water!!! You definitely want the smoothie to come out pretty well so these are the key points.

I can tell you for sure that there is almost nothing as disappointing as drinking sour taste smoothies, you wouldn’t even want to give it a try cos……….

  • Hi Blessing. What a glorious name! This is a smoothy in the purest sense isn’t it?. I wish I could make one but apricots are so tasteless here in Australia. It’s like they have the goodness bred out of them

    • Hi Tania, yes a glorious name indeed… I’ve always gotten similar compliment from various people I’ve come across with, thanks anyways for the compliments.

      It’s just sad to learn that there are no tasty apricots in Australia, maybe I should package some from UK and send over to you 😀
